The menu was large with a variety of options and the food was of a high quality. The bed was really comfortable...

Stayed here for two weeks on business. Comfortable and clean hotel, nice bar and good gym facilities. The food is of a good standard. Staff very pleasant and welcoming. On the downside, the WiFi is unusable. It is ok for browsing on a tablet and possibly email (if you are patient) but forget any remote office connectivity. Much easier to...

Stopped here for a night en route to Harwich to join a cruise. Check in was fine, but could have been better. Spotless and comfortable executive room. Being Sunday, it was a very cheap deal. However, being Sunday, it meant the restaurant was closed, so was forced to choose from a very limited menu in the bar . Excellent breakfast....

Never stayed at the hotel but frequently at the gym. Don't expect David Lloyd or anything close to it, but quite nice as its small an rarely gets to busy. However the men's changing room is tiny an a nightmare if there is more than 3-4 people getting changed at once
